AgriCorps connects American agricultural volunteers to the demand for experiential, school-based, agricultural education in developing countries. The organization, led by Trent McKnight, started operating in Ghana with the support of the Center on Conflict and Development. Trent McKnight is a Texas rancher, philanthropist, and leading scholar and innovator in youth education. ConDev Director Ed Price is a former member of AgriCorps’ Board of Directors.
